How much time do you spend each day developing yourself?
Most people do nothing, yet everyone could afford to spend at least 6 mins a day on self development if they wanted to improve in some way. If you currently don't have a morning routine, and you have goals or aspirations to achieve something this year, then this book might give you just the boost that you're looking for in the New Year. Affiliate Link: The Miracle Morning - by Hal Elrod Hal Elrod's book looks at the 6 common areas of self development that successful people do each day. He decided that if he did all 6 everyday, he would become successful too - and he was right! The Miracle Morning explains how to incorporate the following into your daily routine: -Meditation -Affirmations -Visualisation -Exercise -Reading -Journaling Prior to this book I meditated infrequently, I had tried and stopped doing affirmations, I had never used visualisation or journaling, and I only read books to fall asleep at night. The only area I felt I did well was exercise. I had a morning routine in place but I wasn't fully committed to it, and therefore my results were unsurprisingly inconsistent. I would do 4-5 in a row, but on weekends I would forget to do it, or think I'm entitled to a break. Writing that now sounds a bit stupid - a break from what? Development?! I'm now of the opinion that a structured morning routine helps sets the tone for the day and increases the chance of success. I'm now on my 9th day in the row for 2016, and I plan on going on to 30, 50 and eventually 100 before the end of 2016.
Like eating healthy and exercising, I NEVER regret doing a morning routine, but I ALWAYS regret NOT doing one.
I challenge anyone to complete 30 consecutive morning routines and to claim they have not developed in some way
If you DON'T have a morning routine in place, then you could benefit more from this book than I have as I was already experiencing the benefits on and off throughout the week. Even if you're NOT a morning person, this book will help you put a spring into your step, help you grow everyday, and move you closer to the lifestyle you want. It has a dedicated chapter to people that claim they aren't 'morning people'. I finishes with customising the routine to fit you and your goals/needs, and sets a 30 days challenge to build the habit. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in improving themselves. There aren't many items that can change your life for £10! He has free documents on his books website which you can use to help with direction, motivation and keeping you on track.
